Frames Effect Plugin



What's this?

I know, there are some borders effects plug-ins already available.

But I didn't find any of them able to do this kind of frame:


...till now!



Download it!

Plugin Frame.dll

Here is the DLL


The MadJik's All plugins package is available !



How to install



Classic version of

Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects


Microsoft Store version of

Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: /My Documents/ App Files/Effects/

You have to adapt for your language My Documents



The User interface

This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Render.


Choose the frame mode:

...Single border using primary color.

...Single border using secondary color.

...Double border using both colors.

...Frame with two reversed corners.

...Frame with four reversed corners.

...Frame with middle face with two reversed corners.

...Frame with middle face with four reversed corners.

Distance from the edge (0,200, default=0):

It's the margin.

Width of external border (0,200,default=10)

Width of internal border (0,200,default=10):

Width of middle border (0,200,default=10)

it's the size of each single border.

Transparency level:

Choose the transparency amount. It works better if you create the frame on a new emply layer.

Or duplicate the layer with your image.


...Check for same width amount: If checked all borders widths use the ‘Width of external border’

...Invert Primary / Secondary colors: check to invert colors.

...Add lines: A small line is added between each border.

The third color in mode for the middle face is the average color of primary and secondary colors and

The color for the added lines is the negative of the third color.



Some examples:

abc123qw, I'm neither a mod nor an admin, but I have to tell you that it is really dangerous on this forum to SHOUT. You are a member since june, and should know about this issue.

I don't doubt the plugin is great.
